Lifetime in vitro root exudates of narrow-leaved cattail have a stimulating effect on the populations of Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae VR-2 var. IVM pathogenic bacteria. The degree of the stimulating effect depends on the concentration of lifetime root exudates in the samples of the experimental plant species. In the natural environment, the topical type of interspecies relationship occurs in case of E. rhusiopathiae pathogenic bacteria and Typha angustifolia interaction. In freshwater ecosystems, formations of narrow-leaved cattail may create favorable conditions for the existence of E. rhusiopathiae pathogenic bacteria.
